SoE Commitment to Equality and Diversity
The SoE is fully committed to establishing and maintaining an ethos of dignity and respect for all within a day-to-day culture of promoting equality of opportunity across all activities. Having received the Athena Swan Bronze Award in 2019, the school is committed to further engaging with the Athena Swan process through to 2023 when we will seek reaccreditation. The Equality and Diversity Committee meet regularly each semester to review actions which facilitate the achievement of a more inclusive and equal organisation for staff and students. As part of the process we work closely with the institutional lead and other faculties to ensure that as a business school, we contribute to the development of best practice in diversity and inclusion across the university.
